Re: Powder coating everything
I would be carefull powder coating the entire engine black. I don't think the powder coating will readily release heat the way engine paint will, which is pretty critical to an aircooled Monster. When I put the 900 motor in my bike I repainted the cases, jugs, and heads. I used Hardley-Davidson engine paint that was recommend to me by a friend. It worked extremely well. (although I almost want to hang myself for having a H-D product on my bike) Another thing to take into consideration about anodizing stuff black.. is it will fade eventually and turn a red-brown color.
